Cloudwatching

Over the last couple of days I’ve been trying out some time lapse experiments with my video camera. Typically, it’s only recently that I’ve discovered that my camcorder (Sony TRV30E) does it: there’s a mode called Interval Record.
Anyway, here’s my first effort in all its glory. It’s a bid strange at the start because I should have chopped off some darkness which the various codecs (DV AVI > MPEG-4 > Google’s Flash Codec).
I could have picked a better day than yesterday, but at least it’s better than Tuesday which was really dull. However, there are a couple of exciting things to look out for. Watch the birds sit in formation on an antenna, a hot air balloon fly by in the morning, and look at the clouds flying in different directions at different altitudes towards the end of the day as the weather improves markedly!
